Team Helps Froome Maintain Lead Before Decisive Stages of Tour de France

Cycling: Froome survives French coup attempt to retain Tour lead

One more to come. Froome, however, reclaimed that during an uphill sprint on stage 14.

Patrick Bevin is now the top Kiwi in the Tour in 104th place.

Most of the main contenders were in the second group, 73 seconds further back. "We only have the finish tomorrow to make up this time". But round one of this year's two Alpine stages has seen Froome consolidate his lead, and they may find this second round even tougher.

Dan Martin, who dropped a fifty seconds, has retreated from the 5th to the 7th place in the general classification, just over two minutes to Froome. He has been instructed to work for the Briton but has sometimes looked stronger than him.

He slipped from second to fourth overall, sinking from 18 to 53 seconds behind race leader Chris Froome (Sky). Bardet is still third. "Otherwise it was game over for me".

He appears in great shape and has what is considered the best team surrounding him in his bid to win a fourth Tour title.

"It's unbelievable", Roglic said.

Chris Froome came to the line alongside rivals Rigoberto Uran and Romain Bardet, ultimately splitting the pair as he finished third on the day.

"He (Kwiatkowski) was instrumental in pushing that split today, and his mechanic skills certainly leave nothing to be desired either", quipped Froome about the Pole's wheel changing abilities. On Stage 17, Froome largely rode defensively on the ascents, but the fact that he could so comfortably chase down the accelerations of the others suggests that he is the strongest of the trio. My legs felt good so why not keep everyone in check?

Thursday's stage presents Froome's rivals with one last clear chance to get their noses in front given Froome is strongly favoured to gain time on Saturday's 22.5km time trial in Marseille. But that discipline isn't Aru's forte-unlike Froome.

"I was surprised by Aru dropping time today".

"I'm still in the clouds, I've left the earth", said Barguil.

While Bardet's repeated bursts of acceleration on the Galibier eventually cracked Aru, they couldn't shake off Froome.

"From my perspective I didn't do anything wrong", he said. The officials saw that.

Roglic, pictured below, attacked solo 6km from the summit of the Galibier, the second of two hors categorie climbs, and made it pay to deliver Slovenia's first Tour de France stage win. He ended up 20 seconds ahead of Darwin Atapuma of the United Arab Emirates. It is available also in ITV4 and EuroSport.
